Apexx, a London, UK-based marketplace for global payments, raised $4m in seed funding.
The round was led by Forward Partners with participation from MMC Ventures and Alliance Venture and includes a grant from Innovate UK.
The company intends to use the funds to further extend their global network of acquirers, payment providers and merchants, and fund product development.
Co-founded by Peter Keenan, Peter Keenan, Rodney Bain, and Rob Atkin, Apexx provides a cloud-based marketplace for global payments that allows merchant partners to be always able to accept the ways their customers want to spend, compare costs and get expert advice on the payment providers that will best suit them.
The company is already supported a host of high profile international partners including Alipay, iZettle, NTT DATA, Visa iPay88, Payvision, Credorax, SIX payment services, Paysafe Group, Processing.Com, Transact Europe, CardStream and JetPay.
